Samsung unveils latest PMP: the Galaxy WiFi 3.6

3 years ago 21

Nearly lost amongst news of the Galaxy Tab 7.7 and Galaxy Note this morning, Samsung has also announced the next generation in their Galaxy PMP series: the Galaxy WiFi 3.6.

Named for its 3.6-inch HVGA display, the Galaxy WiFi 3.6 is a WiFi-only device featuring Android 2.3, TouchWiz, a 1 GHz OMAP processor, 8/16GB of storage, a microSD card slot, GPS, Bluetooth, a 2 megapixel camera with LED flash and a VGA front-facing camera. In order to keep up with its title of personal media player, the Galaxy WiFi 3.6 will launch with a wide variety of codecs for playing any and all sorts of media across the globe.

Pricing for the Galaxy Wifi 3.6 will be modest (probably to match previous sales of the Galaxy 4 and 5), but will it be enough? The 8GB version will launch for £149 ($240) and the 16GB version for £169 ($270). Is that cheap enough to convince you to buy? In a world of dual-core Galaxy S IIs, a $270 media player almost seems a little pricy. What do you think?
